Main One, Phase3 highlight open access model
Main One Cable company and Phase3 Telecom have highlighted their open access broadband expansion model, with an awareness campaign that kicked off in Port Harcourt recently.
Their Broadband Expansion Project officially commenced in February this year, servicing oil companies in the region.
Phase3 Telecom believes the Open Access Network model will help enhance reliable and affordable high speed broadband connectivity and has taken steps under a private sector framework to align with Main One to achieve this. Phase3 Telecom is bringing an extensive coverage strength that enables the Main One - Phase3 Telecom OFC network reach available to offices that need to have their branches linked out of Port Harcourt city.
“We want to implement an Open Access Model in Rivers state so that her indigenes can plug into the global knowledge grid. A well connected society stays competitive on the leading edge of development,” said Stanley Jegede, the CEO of Phase3 Telecom.
Funke Opeke, CEO of Main One, said at the recent Awareness Creation Event in Port Harcourt: “The oil sector is unique because it is very dependent on information technology and connectivity. Those we served have used it to transact business at the right time, real time, exchanging highly technical information to get their business done. We are prepared to engineer our services and deliver value to our customers. We are also affordable. We are here to help the oil and gas services deepen their operations in the Port Harcourt area and continue to grow.”
